*In regard to the “People” category, these people are the ones who I feel are either amazing at something they do or inspire me in some way. Some are great at what they do and inspire me.*

So, yeah. These are my favorite things and they make my life a little brighter or inspire me or both and I love them for that.

I am a literature geek working toward my Bachelor's in English with a concentration in writing. I love to read, and I'm always itching to write, especially creatively. I started "The Writer's Library" about three years ago, previously working with a Blogger platform before moving over to Wordpress. While I mainly post reviews of books, occasionally I will go ahead and review works in other media forms as well, such as music and certain television shows. No matter what I'm doing on here, I love to share with anyone who is willing to listen, and I'm excited to finally be on Wordpress!
